First results from collisions of three-particle ions with gold nuclei reveal clear-cut evidence of primordial soup's signature particle flow.
Accelerating positrons with plasma is a step toward smaller and cheaper particle colliders.
Warmer-than-usual waters in North Atlantic contribute to both phenomena.
09.04.15 A team of scientists led by PNNL has developed a mathematical framework that provides guidance to how global climate models can more accurately simulate the behavior of the all-important jet stream.
09.03.15 A set of automated calibration techniques for tuning residential and commercial building energy efficiency software models to match measured data is now available as an open source code.
09.03.15 Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Karl-Franzens University in Austria show how clusters funnel atoms to create oxygen pools that benefit biofuels, fuel cells, and sensors.
X-ray laser experiment at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory reveals never-before seen neural messaging details which could help in designing new drugs for brain disorders. Read More
Researchers at EMSL study the components and inhabitants of soil communities, gathering data to better understand and model how factors – agriculture, climate changes, ecosystems activities – change soil chemistry. Read More »
Scientists used the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to create a 100-million-atom simulation of a chromatophore, providing an unprecedented look at how bacteria harvest light for food. Read More
Inspired by water bears, researchers at the University of Chicago have created glasses where there is some well-defined organization, as well as the origin of that organization.
Researchers at the University of Kansas working with an international team at the Large Hadron Collider have produced quark-gluon plasma — a state of matter thought to have existed right at the birth of the universe — with fewer particles than previously thought possible.
University of California, Berkeley, seismologists have produced for the first time a sharp, three-dimensional scan of Earth’s interior that conclusively connects plumes of hot rock rising through the mantle with surface hotspots that generate volcanic island chains like Hawaii, Samoa and Iceland.
